Carol was an amazing grandma and great-grandma (Little Grandma) to those she loved dearly. She loved Christmas, family get-togethers, reading, cooking and baking, gardening, coffee with friends, and just all things family. She especially enjoyed annual family vacations to Branson, MO and her and Johnny’s annual trip to Estes Park, CO.
